Due Date

posted on: Saturday, August 25, 2012

Well, here we are folks. 40 weeks. :) Last night as I found myself scrubbing my bathroom floor and ridding my house of excess clutter, I realized how extreme I was being. I told myself that Saturday meant not cleaning ANYTHING. So as today marks our due date, we are taking it easy and chilling. Relaxing is a luxury for our family lately. With Sam's work, side projects and my doll business, it has been pretty crazy.  I have been  fighting off a nasty head cold, which is kinda the pits. Being 9 months pregnant and sick isn't the most desirable combo, but thankfully I have a pretty darn sweet guy who runs to the store for me when I just HAVE to have this or that. ;)

The past couple of days, I have kinda felt like a little old lady, grunting as I stand up and holding my back as I waddle down the hallway. Other than lots of cramps and one wee centimeter of dilation, all is quiet in the labor department. I'm not anxious at all. And, if I go late, I'm not freaked out. I've already been there and done that. haha. I am very hopeful and expecting lots of goodness and redemption with this birth. I have an amazing birth support team and lots of peace. Once that little boy pops out, we are popping the cork of champagne and treating this birth like a party...I want to say thank you to all my beautiful heart friends who have spoken peace, beauty and goodness over my birth with this little boy the past months. I'm really excited. Sam is antsy to hold his second son and have a new born in the house again. (Melts my heart.) I think we both feel a little more giddy with this birth because we know how amazing it is. Yeah, exhaustion and all that crazy jazz, but oh man...our new boy is almost here.

Kael's preschool's open house is tomorrow and the wedding of a dear friend and midwife that evening. So if all is quiet, we'll be partying guys.  Lot's of newness and celebration. Maybe I'll go into labor on the dance floor?! How awesome would that be?!

I think we are off to get a five guys and fries burger to celebrate our due date. As I enjoy that bit of American perfection, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

My beautiful boy,

Let's have a party soon? Wanna?

Love,

Momma

  2. Ahhh, how exciting! I like the idea of celebrating like a party. When I found out I was having a boy, I listened to "True Blue" by Bright Eyes ALL of the time and loved the line that said, "when it's your birthday we'll have a blue cake and we'll eat it on these blue plates" and I had SO planned on celebrating his birth with blue cake and blue plates buuuut I was not so lucky, haha. Little boys are the best! Happy due date!

  12. Im so excited for your whole family! Youre one in a slew of beautiful bloggers I check just about daily to see if a new little member has been added! Seems eveyone is due at the same time! I dont remember you saying before (or maybe you did and I missed it) but will you be having a home birth with this baby too? Either way, say youll journal this birth experience with pictures as you did with Kael?! What a blessing and joy it was to share in the joy with your family as you brought forth new life!!! Best to you all in the waiting! May you have the peace of the Lord and the patience of a saint!

  13. You make me so happy. Hi Jess! I found your blog maybe two months ago. Have wanted to send you a note to say thank you - your attitude is so refreshing, you are so talented and inspiring and guess what, because of you, in my friggin 30s I've discovered there's a little bit of boho in me after all. Thank you! I want to be just like you when I grow up :) Blessings to you and your family. I wish you have a peaceful birth, stay strong and be glad. Thanks too for your gift of sharing. I should have said hello a while sooner. -Ani

  14. Like you, I have children from 2010 and now 2012. I had my daughter in March this year. I FINALLY, got my home birth!!! It was by accident ;) But hey, I got it! My husband caught our daughter and it has been life changing for him.

    I miss being pregnant because this one went smooth unlike the last one. This is our last child. I had a prolapse and I'm not taking chances financially either. So Enjoy every last second of your 'past due' belly!

    Safe, beautiful birth to you. All our best.

  21. There is nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman! How big are the scarves that you tie around your hair? Or did you just buy them like that? I love that look!
